Virgin Mobile is changing their Beyond Talk Plans as of late. One way to nudge subscribers into higher priced plans is to slightly raise the price of your main plans, but then lower the cost of the unlimited everything option. That is exactly what Virgin Mobile has just done, although some might not be happy that unlimited everything plan for only $55 sounds like a pretty great deal.
Following suit of almost all carriers, Verizon Wireless is expected to launch it’s new tiered data plans October 28th according to Engadget. The new plans are, not surprisingly, expensive when comparing them to the unlimited plans that were offered not too long ago.
Let’s face it contracts are not for everyone, they’re binding, and although they offer competitive pricing for data plans (they have to to compete) many users who prefer to go the prepaid route have not seen cheap option plans. That looks like it will be changing now with a recently leaked T-Mobile Prepaid Broadband plans sheet.
Verizon, following suit of many other mobile service providers, plan on releasing tiered data plans within the next 4-6 months. Not many other details have been said regarding pricing and the tiers offered but, Ivan Seidenberg the CEO of Verizon, took a quick shot at AT&T and how they handle tiered data.
